Overcoming Tension, Pain, and Back Problems
Stephen, Lynnwood center, (WA)
When I started Dahn Yoga I had no idea what to do for myself; I just knew that my body hurt and was tightening more and more over time, and that tension in my body and a swollen feeling was making it hard to move the way I had in my youth. I was only 31 years old, but I felt like a broken old man. My lower back would blow out two or three times a year to the point that I would be out for a week or two. I had built up a lot of toxic emotions from my previous experiences.
Dahn Yoga is like Kung-Fu for our soul. Energy starts to move and release little by little. Through Dahn Yoga, I moved through the stages of release, layer-by-layer, eventually exposing my true self to myself. As my body readjusted and straightened into a more natural, open state I learned how to quiet my mind through dynamic meditation. In the moments when my mind chatter stops, I feel bright energy filling my body. I learned to heal myself using my natural healing power. Although some exercises may feel awkward at first, once I could feel the benefit of regular class, started stengthening my body, and started getting energy moving through my body, my ego started to melt away and I found that all aspects of Dahn Yoga training are beneficial. Using your body to enlighten your mind is what Dahn Yoga is all about. Keep Training!
